    While this game was played 13 years B4 I was born, I still remember that in the mid 40s , when we only had radio, they were still talking about Rodgers Hornsby and Jim Bottomley. I sure miss St Louis base ball, cards and Browns, but finally we have a Major League team in Washington again and I can see Cards play one series a year here and hope to see a series in St louis this year if I can get tickets for 15-17 July.
